If you stopped by today to find a heart-healthy recipe to go along with the “gettin’ off the couch” theme we’ve had on the site lately, you need to keep on scrolling….’cause this ain’t it!
On the other hand, if you’re interested in quick, easy, and scrumptious, then you’re in the right place ’cause this recipe is all about minimal time investment with maximum taste results.
I don’t have an official name for all this creamy, crunchy goodness, but my kids always call it “The Cool Whip & Cookie Stuff” (pretty much covers it).
So, without further ado….
2 Ingredient Incredibly Delicious Dessert (a.k.a. The Cool Whip & Cookie Stuff)
8 oz. container of frozen Cool-Whip, thawed
1 package of Oreos
Place the Oreos in a gallon sized Ziploc-type bag.
Zip the bag shut. (Yeah…you don’t want to forget that. Don’t ask me how I know.)
Use a wooden kitchen mallet (or the bottom of a glass) to crush the Oreos. Don’t crush them completely…you’ll want some bigger pieces too. Trust me.
Dump all the Cool-Whip into a large bowl.
Pour the crumbled Oreos into the Cool-Whip.
Stir it all together.
Now…the hard part. Don’t eat it yet. Cover the bowl with some plastic wrap and put it in the frig for at least an hour. This gives the cookies enough time to soften (don’t worry, they won’t be too soft…they’ll be a “just right” kinda crunchy).
This scrumptious dessert isn’t something we have very often at all, but it’s usually requested for birthdays and the end-of-the-school-year party. And it also works great for those times when I need to bring a dessert to a pot-luck, but haven’t had time to bake anything.
Got any ideas for a name for our previously unnamed dessert? I’d love to hear your suggestions!
